PLACE-NAMES IN DEVON
Chips Barber

Place-names and their meanings, if they have any, are a constant source of enjoyment (or frustration) and a knowledge of them can be educational, particularly where there is a 'story' behind them. This book is more of a fun book than a comprehensive gazeteer, because interpreting place-names is an inexact science. However, this fascinating book lists many Devon towns and villages, and looks at the tales, and possible reasons, behind them.
